Another tooth gone!

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Monty lost another tooth today. He was so excited because this morning he got a call from his friend, Biene telling him she lost her tooth. He was so excited that they each lost a tooth on the same day.



Here’s Ella showing her tooth. She wanted me to pull it out so bad. One day she sat and wiggled her tooth forever that she did actually make it loose. She was sooo excited, however the next day it already started tightening up and by the following day it wasn’t loose anymore. She doesn’t realize that and swears its going to fall out any day. I keep telling her she has to wait until she is 5 or 6.


Sleeping Calvie

Monday, March 31st, 2008

Well I did take a picture of Calvie sleeping.


I took his boots, hat and mitten off and put him in his bed!


Sunday, March 30th, 2008

So little Calvin has been refusing to take a nap. I still have him lay down for rest but he does not fall asleep anymore. This makes the afternoon very eventful. By bedtime he is overtired and raring to go. I put him to bed for the 10th time and ran downstairs to do some laundry this is what I came upstairs to.


Ella just got that hat from Aunty Kari and he has been begging her to wear it she instead will find him a different hat to wear. He didn’t care too much for that so he decided as soon as she fell asleep he would go get it. He also loves to go outside and was getting all ready to go out. He is sleeping in that entire get up right now. Hey I better go so I can get a picture :)

Winter walk I mean Spring

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

Oh yes it is Spring and here in Wisconsin we still have snow! A lot of it melted and I was getting very anxious for it to go, however tonight on the news it said we are going to be getting another winter storm! I will see what tomorrow brings.


Here’s Monty on our walk. Look not much snow in the background!


Ella was so excited to get out of the house we were all going stir crazy.


Calvie too was so excited. Every chance he gets he sneaks outside to play we have to keep our doors locked now.


Ollie was also very happy to be outside!

We ended up walking to the park the kids brought their shovels to dig in the dirt/snow. They really did have a lot of fun and I was happy to get outside too.


Busy at work.

Papa and Tractor

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

So my dad calls Oliver tractor because they use to have an Oliver tractor and he thought it was great. Whenever he hears the word Oliver he thinks of his tractor interesting huh?!


Here they are hanging out. Dad can get into his wheelchair so he is happy about that but he can’t do much of anything else. Today we went to visit him and the nurse came out to check on him his foot is awful so now he needs to go see a surgeon on Friday. One heel is totally black and the other one is all fleshy looking and black. Yuck! It is so sad to see him go through all of this yet he remains in good spirits. Mom is a saint and deals with everything. I really don’t know how she does it. She lives on very little sleep and is constantly helping others. It makes me tired just thinking about all the things she does. The kids were super good while we were there they get excited because they get to watch Uncle Zach’s He-Man movies and play with Uncle Adam and Uncle Zach’s old He-man toys. We were hoping to meet up with Bea and her kiddos but it didn’t work out this time. Today is Cade’s birthday! Happy 1st birthday Cade!!! He wasn’t feeling well today poor little guy. Well it was a very eventful day. It was super nice seeing Mom and Dad (Nana and Papa)

Easter Sunday

All ready for church

Easter egg hunt

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Every year we have an Easter egg hunt at my Grandma and Grandpa’s Little Pink Restaurant. This year they had to get a little more creative with all the snow. Of course it was wonderful again. The kids were able to go find eggs hidden around the restaurant and then they went on a treasure hunt the older kids helped the little ones. The kids loved it.


Here’s Monty filling his bag


And Ella!


Calvie of course went for the ones in the snow!

(So I am still working on trying to get these pics the right size I don’t know why Ella’s pic is bigger. I must mess around with it more :)

Socks Socks Socks!!

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Ok so this is so embarrassing but here goes. I put all my socks that I cannot find a pair into a laundry basket and I kind of forget about them. I finally decided to go through them after many hours I ended up with 182 pair of matched socks!!! What in the world? I also threw out a grocery bag full of missing ones. I now have a super small basket that I am going to use now instead. That took way too long to go through and was absolutely ridiculous. Since I can never find socks for the kids to wear I am always buying new ones how pathetic!


Here are the socks that all have a match. Yeah!

1st day of Spring

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

Well today for the first day of Spring we decided to take a walk and go splashing in the puddles!


Here’s Monty and Ella enjoying the puddles.


Here we are all bundled up for our Spring walk. I couldn’t find Calvin’s rainboots so he borrowed Ella’s old ones:) Ella is still in the house trying to find the right accessories to go with her outfit. Ahh that girl :)
